HTC’s official announcement for the HTC U isn’t until May 16, but that hasn’t stopped the phone from leaking all over the internet.Tech blog 91 Mobiles has teamed up with long-time tipster and journalist Steve Hemmerstoffer, who goes by the pseudonym ‘@Onleaks’.He’s got an incredible track record for accurate mobile leaks, so it’s always worth checking out what he’s got to show off.Hemmerstoffer’s latest findings include a video showcasing a supposed HTC U render from all angles:As you can see from the video, the phone features virtually bezel-less sides, and ships in a glossy red colour – although other colours will likely be available.There’s also a Home button on the front with a fingerprint scanner built in.

In december glidflög Virgin Galactic for the first time – now it has successfully demonstrated its unique method of ”re-entry” from space.Now, in the fight to be the first to launch commercial space travel, it is rather private actors fighting against each other.the latter is, however, one step ahead, and is the only company which has a licence to carry paying passengers.But unlike the earlier three – included the latest something new.It all goes to the two bottom folds up to provide aerodynamic resistance at a reentry from space.the Test was conducted at an altitude lower than where the system is supposed to be used when rymdflygningarna well drag started.

p Facebook expanded on that boring “Like” button last year, letting users “react” to posts, and now the same reactions are available for comments.It was early last year that Facebook introduced us to what the company calls “reactions”: ranging from love to angry, the update did not bring the dislike button that all of us had been waiting for, but it opened up a whole new world for self-expression.These reactions were initially limited to Facebook posts, but the social media giant recently integrated them into its Messenger app.While this is certainly a step in the right direction, I am still waiting for that day when we will be able to post GIFs as comments – now, imagine the possibilities!The last update straight ‘outta Snapchat comes in the form of camera effects.Facebook is rolling out a number these, including filters, masks and “dynamic objects” that can be applied to your snaps.

p The KeyOne is a device from an alternative timeline where BlackBerry didn’t completely whiff and miss the touchscreen revolution.In that parallel universe, Biff Tannen wasn’t elected president and nobody forced devoted thumb-typers to abandon their beloved QWERTY keyboards.TCL, the Chinese electronics manufacturer that now owns BlackBerry’s branding rights in much of the world has acknowledged as much in the lead up to the handset’s release.But while it’s easy to write off the return of the physical keyboard as a bit of nostalgic pandering, it’s not worth writing off entirely.The company’s been focused security and productivity apps – the far less sexy side of smartphone software, but one that could help the brand rekindle some IT department love down the road.A BlackBerry without a keyboard is like a ThinkPad without the pointing stick.

p Uber’s long list of scandals that have hit the company in the past few months includes one problem that will not go away as fast or as easily as Uber would like it too.Earlier this year, Google’s self-driving car division sued Uber and accused the ride-sharing company of stealing proprietary technology from Waymo.Specifically, Waymo says that a former lead engineer took self-driving car tech secrets when he left the company last year.That engineer, one of the top Google minds in this particular business, formed his own self-driving car startup that was purchased by Uber soon after that for close to $700 million.Now, Uber has to fight it out in courts with Google for the life of its self-driving car plans.Uber is going to court on Wednesday, Reuters reports, to fight against an injunction that would permanently put on hold Uber’s self-driving car program until the court case reaches its end.

p If you’re one of those “I hate my job” people, I can definitely sympathize.Having once worked for nearly a decade at a cable company, both on the phones with irate customers and in other capacities, I don’t have to think too far back to remember a time when waking up in the morning was a chore in itself.This Florida woman obviously feels exactly the same way, and when fate handed her the opportunity to score a “Get out of work, free!” card, along with a nice worker’s compensation check, she took it without hesitation.This is 2017, and everyone is watching.The woman in the video is one Sheyla Veronica White.Reports have not disclosed exactly where White was employed, but it’s clear from the video that her desk work was abruptly interrupted by a falling sprinkler component.

p The creative director at Iris Worldwide recalled a recent shoot, where things didn’t quite go to plan.“Pretty much everyone in the industry says don’t work with children and animals, and it’s true!But I didn’t know that.” Nina had planned to film a falcon flying from one location to another.Everything was looking good, though the team had a tight schedule.Unfortunately, during the second shot, the falcon flew off and went missing for days leaving everyone - particularly the bird handler - panic-stricken.Luckily, it turned up miles away and the vet was able to sign off that ‘no animals were harmed in the making of this film."

p A car manufacturer has developed a compartment that blocks mobile phone signals.Nissan says the prototype Signal Shield, built into the arm rest of its Juke crossover vehicle, will eliminate distractions caused by incoming calls, messages and social media notifications.The box works on the principle of the Faraday cage - invented in the 1830s - which uses material such as a wire mesh to shield its contents from electromagnetic fields.All mobile, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi signals are prevented from reaching inside the compartment once the lid is closed.Penalties and fines for illegal phone use by drivers doubled to six points and £200 on March 1 following a series of high-profile cases and research suggesting the practice is widespread.Nissan Motor GB managing director Alex Smith said: "Mobile phone use at the wheel is a growing concern across the automotive industry, and indeed society, particularly with the high number of pushed communications such as texts, social media notifications and app alerts that tempt drivers to reach for their devices.

p In the 100 days since President Trump took office, concerned Americans have downloaded over 2 million government datasets.To back up information they believe is in danger of going dark: climate science research, discriminatory housing reports, gun violence statistics.But public data preservation isn’t just a job for citizens working in university libraries and on digital archiving Githubs.On Thursday, Senators Gary Peters and Cory Gardner introduced a bipartisan bill that would make it much, much harder for any administration to disappear public data.If passed, the Preserving Government Data Act of 2017 would affect the availability of everything from census numbers to sea level rise.Earlier this month Trump announced that he wouldn’t be voluntarily providing White House visitor logs, invoking the Presidential Records Act to conceal the comings and goings at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for five years after his last term ends.

Domino’s has announced a new tie-up with IFTTT that will allow customers to automate their smart home devices according to the status of their pizza delivery.IFTTT, an acronym for “If this, then that,” is a platform that allows users to create customized, conditional interactions between apps, online services, digital assistants, wearables, and other connected devices.The company recently scrapped its former recipe-based system and replaced it with applets, and to highlight some of the potential use-cases for Domino’s on IFTTT, the pizza giant has already created a bunch of applets here.Domino’s has integrated its existing online tracker with the IFTTT platform — some examples of these conditional actions include automatically turning your porch lights on ahead of your pizza being delivered or deactivating the connected sprinkler in your front yard to avoid soaking the delivery driver as they walk up your path.Alternatively, you could create your own applet that sets your sprinkler system to turn ON just in time for the delivery driver’s arrival, depending on how cruel you’re feeling.The IFTTT partnership is the latest in a long line of initiatives from Domino’s, which is seeking to position itself as a technology company within the food industry.Back in March, Domino’s announced a partnership with Starship Technologies to test pizza deliveries using autonomous ground drones, and it also offers a bot that automates pizza orders through Facebook Messenger.Now Domino’s customers can connect their pizza deliveries into the fabric of their connected homes.“We understand how much people love using Domino’s Tracker, not only to know where their order is in the preparation and delivery process, but also to plan around that much-anticipated pizza arrival,” said Dennis Maloney, Domino’s senior vice president / chief digital officer.“And now we’re empowering customers to unleash their imagination as they create new ways to integrate some of our favorite innovations, like Domino’s Tracker, into their everyday lives.”

The Pluto-shaped void in our hearts has yet to be filled by Planet 9, copious amounts of Ben & Jerry’s, or anything.Ever since the summer of 2015, when NASA’s New Horizons performed a six-month-long reconnaissance flyby study of Pluto and its moons, fans of the dwarf planet have wondered if or when we’d ever go back.According to New Horizons principal investigator Alan Stern, he and some other planetary scientists are already drawing up the blueprint for a return trip—and this time, it’d be much more than just a flyby.“The news is not that we have a specific mission design,” Stern told Gizmodo.“The news is that the community is forming around the concept of going back to Pluto with an orbiter mission that would stay and study the planet for years, and do it in ways that we could not have in a simple flyby like New Horizons.It would have much more advanced instrumentation and the ability to map every square inch of the planet, and unravel all the complexity that we found.”
